Scholarship SuccessOutward Bound

Congratulations to Annelies Orme and Bobby Pritchard who were awarded full sponsorships to attend an Outward Bounds course during the October holidays. Annelies and Bobby joined 12 other students from around the Manawatu and embarked on a 21 day outdoor experience in Anakiwa. During the course, students went rock climbing, kayaking, tramping, had daily swims in the ocean and spent two nights alone in the bush. The experience taught the students many lessons, most importantly "you can do anything you set your mind to". 

Congratulations also to Lucy Scrivener who has been awarded a scholarship from Rongotea Lions Club to attend an Outdoor Pursuits Challenge in December.

In August Briar competed in the North Wellington Judo Champs in Palmerston North, winning two golds, one silver and one bronze. She then competed in the North Island Judo Champs in Auckland, winning a silver and bronze. Well done!

Target Shooting

Earlier this term, a number of students competed at the 2019 TSNZ Challenge Smallbore Rifle Target Shooting Competition. The Awatapu #1 Target Shooting Team (Xavier Hintz, Blake Feekery and Cameron Churchouse) came 20th in the Boys’ Grade and the Awatapu #2 Target Shooting Team (Thomas Burgess, Brodie Schulze and Rowan Woods) came 17th in the Mixed Grade.

In their individual pursuits, Xavier Hintz, Blake Feekery and Cameron Churchouse competed in the Boys’ Individual Grade, and Thomas Burgess, Casey Bowater, Haylie Whittaker, Stevan Hamblyn and Rowan Woods competed in the Rest Individual Grade. Well done to everyone who participated in this event.

Further congratulations to Xavier Hintz who was selected in the Manawatu Rifle Shooting Team and won the Regional Rifle Shooting Competition.

Wood Skills CompetitionWoodwork

Congratulations to Lucy Scrivener who won the Manawatu Secondary Schools Creative Wood Skills Competition organised by UCOL and hosted by the Square Edge. Lucy designed and produced a river resin slab coffee table complete with LED lighting. This creative piece of furniture would not be out of place in a corporate office or foyer. This is the 3rd year in a row Lucy has gained success in this competition. In 2017 Lucy was highly commended and in 2018 she was awarded 1st equal. Well done!
